Publisher's Summary

Rae Earl's hysterically funny and very touching real-life 1989 diary. If Adrian Mole had a teenage sister, she'd sound like this.

It's 1989, and Rae Earl is a fat, boy-mad 17-year-old girl living with her mum and their deaf white cat in a council house with a mint-green bathroom suite and a kitchen Rae can't keep away from.

This is the hilarious real-life diary she kept during that fateful year - with characters like her evil friend, Bethany; Bethany's besotted boyfriend; and the boys from the school up the road (who have code names like Haddock and Battered Sausage).

My Mad Fat Diary evokes a vanished time when Charles and Di are still together, the Berlin wall is up, and Kylie is expected to disappear from the charts at any moment. It will appeal to anyone who lived through the 1980s. But it will also strike a chord with anyone who's ever been a confused, lonely teenager who clashes with their mother, takes themselves very seriously and has no idea how utterly funny they are.

What the Critics Say

"You wouldn't catch many people revealing their true teen thoughts. Hurray then for Rae Earl, who dug out her 1989 diary and published it in the raw. Hilarious and gut-wrenchingly familiar." (In Style)

"Full of 80s nostalgia, this journal will make you laugh out loud." (Closer, four stars)

    "So addictive and enjoyable"

    I loved this book! I related to everything written as I'm 2 years younger than Rae, the music, the way she felt inside! I am immediately downloading the second book! Does she get haddock???? I hope so! Brilliantly read as well!
